No Bake Choc. Peanut Butter Cookies

Easy for children with braces to eat.  Crush all dry ingredients in a food processor than pulse to mix in wet ingredients.

1 cup fine crumbs of vanilla wafers, or graham crackers, or vanilla butter cookies crumbled and made fine in the food processor

1 cup quick oats pulsed in food processor

1 cup peanut butter (creamy for braces) pulsed

1 TBS vanilla

2 TBS Coca powder, I used light sugar Nestle Quick

1/4 cup honey or agave syrup

1 cup raisins pulsed

Make sure all items are fine so that nothing gets caught in braces.  Use a teaspoon to press spoonfuls in clean ice cube trays and refrigerate until set 2 to 3 hours.  Store in refrigerator.

16.  The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him, and the Lord shall cover him all the day long.  DEUT. 33:12.

As the bird beneath her feathers

Guards the objects of her care,

So the Lord His children gathers,

Spreads His wings and hides them there;

Thus protected,

All their foes they boldly dare.

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.  PSA. 17:8.

Though dark be my way, since he is my guide,

‘T is mine to obey, ‘t is his to provide;

The word he has spoken shall surely prevail.
